New York and New Jersey Construction Injury Lawyers
Roof Fall • Construction Safety Harness Defect • Equipment Failure
Equipment failure is often pinpointed as the cause of construction accidents. Resulting injuries or deaths bring extraordinary losses and expenses to construction workers and their families. Medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering are ways in which the law measures compensation due from negligent parties to injury victims.
If you or a family member has suffered broken bones, spinal cord injuries, or head injuries after falling from a roof at a construction site, Albert Buzzetti & Associates is ready to help you fight for your rights. Our New York and New Jersey construction accident lawyers have extensive experience recovering the maximum compensation available for injured roofers and construction workers.
Protecting the Rights of Injured Persons for Over a Decade
A starting point in the search for sources of compensation is, of course, the employer of a construction worker or other laborer who is injured because of construction equipment failure at a building site. We know how much your family is counting on us. We handle workers' compensation claims in a timely manner.
Did You Fall Off a Roof? We Go Beyond Workers' Compensation
At the same time, we will diligently seek to identify and quantify the liability of any other responsible parties: manufacturers, engineers, architects, inspectors, subcontractors, and public utility companies, for example. We will work to protect our clients' rights to full benefits after a roof fall -- whether an old or new roof, a partially completed roof, or a finished roof.
Examples of questions in an investigation of your worksite accident include:
- Was the roof completed to a point where it was safe for workers to be on it?
- Were guard rails properly in place?
- Were workers using required construction safety harnesses and safety ropes?
- If a crane, ladder, or scaffold was involved in the roof fall, was this equipment properly manufactured, inspected, and secured?
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a fall from a roof at a construction site in New York or New Jersey, it is important to have a knowledgeable construction law attorney investigate as soon as possible.
